Cleaning Spills or Accidents on Your Mattress
We know accidents happen! Here's how to clean up all kinds of spills and accidents on your new mattress.
Small Spills and Stains
We recommend spot-cleaning it for small spills or stains. We suggest using a small amount of mild detergent and water and gently dabbing the cover, rather than rubbing it. Make sure the cleaned area is completely dry before placing sheets and blankets back on the mattress.
Please note that although the covers on the Tuft & Needle mattresses do have a zipper, the built-on mattress cover is not meant to be removed. The zipper is there for the purpose of putting the cover on the foam at our manufacturing facility.
Large Spills and Stains
For any large spills or stains, you'll want to immediately blot the spots with clean, dry rags or paper towels to get as much of the liquid out as possible. Try to soak up the extra liquid by applying pressure to the spot on the mattress to absorb as much liquid as possible. Repeat this as many times as necessary. If you have access to a wet/dry vacuum, you can also use this to remove a lot of the water.
